• This month Sous Chef, Paul Watts, shares his recipe for a great Summer pudding!

    'For me a summer pudding needs to involve lots of fresh fruit, and this great dessert is quick and easy to make. It makes a great addition to summer salads or grilled chicken.'
    Summer Pudding
    Prep time 20 mins plus overnight chilling: serves 8
    You will need:
    500g Blackberries, blackcurrents and redcurrents
    75g Castor sugar
    100g Strawberries sliced
    100g Raspberries
    16 slices of white bread with the crusts cut off

    Place blackberries and currents in a heavy pan with the sugar and four tablespoons of water. Cook these gently stirring for 10 mins until tender. Add strawberries & raspberries and leave to cool.
    Cut out sixteen three inch circles of bread. Cut the remaining bread into strips one inch wide, soak in reserve juice.
    Line the base of eight ramikin dishes with the circles of bread, arrange the strips to fit around the side.
    Divide the fruit between the dishes and place the remaining circles on top.
    Cover each dish with grease proof paper and stand one on top of another on two sauces. Place a cup or a weight of 8oz on top of each pile, leave over night in the fridge. Turn out on a plate and decorate with whipped cream.

    What's new at The Regent?
    ''We have a Strawberries and Cream special, served with a chilled glass of Prosecco, delicious! We also have a new Summer Menu and I would recommend the stuffed chicken roulade, which is filled with mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes and pine nuts and wrapped in pancetta. It's served with saute potatoes, pesto and a cream sauce.'
    What's coming up?
    'Latino dishes and special cocktails for the world cup and a special salmon and strawberries summer lunch.'

  • As many of you may already know we are dog friendly at The Regent, and we love meeting our canine guests. The Lake District is the perfect place to bring your 'Man's best friend' and with so many walks and outdoor activities to get your teeth into it would be a shame to leave your dog at home!

    Our faviourte walk
    Ambleside to Grasmere via Loughrigg Terrace is always a great walk, you get wonderful views of Grasmere, Dunmail Raise and the surrounding mountains.

    Our dog model is Alfred, a miniature wire haired Dachshund who recently paid us a visit over the warm Easter Bank Holiday. His owner told us he adored his stay, especially all the walks and long grass!
